Uniform master study programmes fall into second cycle study programmes. They are formed if students are being prepared for employment which is in order with either EU directives or with national regulations. Unless the EU directives state otherwise, the duration of the programmes are five years and consist of 300 credit points. According to the Decree on the Introduction and Use of Classification System of Education and Training (in Slovene) they are classified within level 7.
The uniform master study programmes allow students to achieve and deepen both their professional knowledge and capacity. This is the equivalent to the first cycle university study programme, which, along with knowledge, is equivalent to second cycle programmes.
Today, such programmes have been formulated for medicine, dental medicine, veterinary medicine, pharmaceuticals, architecture, theology and pedagogical mathematics. The first three consist of 6 years or study and 360 credit points, while the other four consist of 5 years of study and 300 credit points. The general application requirements for such programmes are the same as those for the first cycle university study programmes. The criteria are also the same for the selection of candidates in the case of application limits.
Graduates of medicine, dental medicine, veterinary medicine and pharmacy are awarded the following professional titles: doktor or doktorica medicine (Doctor of Medicine), doktor or doktorica dentalne medicine (Doctor of Dental Medicine), doktor or doktorica veterinarske medicine (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine), magister or magistra farmacije (Doctor of Pharmacy). Graduates of other uniform master programmes are awarded their professional titles according to the general regulations.
